Picturesque meant - he decided after careful observation of the scenerey that inspired Twoflower to use the word - that the landscape was horribly precipitous. Quaint, when used to describe the occasional village through which they passed, meant fever-ridden and tumbledown. Twoflower was a tourist, the first ever seen on the discworld. Tourist, Rincewind had decided, mean 'idiot'.

— Terry Pratchett

There are no inconsistencies in the Discworld books; ocassionally, however, there are alternate pasts.

— Terry Pratchett

As we all know, the Discworld is a flat planet - like a geological pizza, but without the anchovies.

— Terry Pratchett
